Eggs collected from a woman are mixed with their partner spermatozoa and are kept in a petri-dish (glass) and cultured under incubator. The resultant embryos are transferred into a woman's uterus.
During in vitro fertilization, one 's eggs do get fertilized by sperm outside one's body, in a laboratory. Then one (or more) of those fertilized eggs is transferred into one's uterus with the hope that it will implant as well as result in pregnancy as well as a baby nine months later.
According to the proposed protocol, ovarian stimulation begins on day 2 of the menstrual cycle. This phase usually lasts 12 to 14 days, during which hormonal injections are administered daily. The hormone increases the number of eggs produced by the woman, so there is more for fertilization. During this phase, hormonal tests and ultrasound monitoring are performed. Once the main follicles have reached the appropriate size, an oocyte maturation injection, ie HCG, is administered.
Once the HCG injection is administered, the oocyte retrieval is performed 34 hours after the HCG injection. This procedure is done vaginally under sedation and requires hospitalization for at least half a day. The woman usually advised rest and analgesics a day after this procedure.
Step 3: Male partner procedure: Simultaneously with the recovery of eggs, the semen sample of the male partner is taken for treatment.
The ICSI injections is indeed a procedure made use of for fertilization purposes and the following aspects make a part of it: The mature egg is indeed held with a specialized pipette.
A very delicate, sharp, and no doubt a hollow needle is rather made use of to immobilize and pick up a single sperm.
The needle is then carefully of course inserted through the shell of the egg and into the cytoplasm of the egg.
The sperm injected into the cytoplasm, and the needle is carefully removed.
The eggs are checked the following day for evidence of normal fertilization.
Between the third and fifth day after egg retrieval, the embryos are subjected to fertilization and cleavage control and transferred to the woman's uterus through the cervix. The remaining embryos are frozen or cryopreserved for the future.
Patient takes a pregnancy test 15 days after embryo transfer. At this stage we will arrange appropriate support.
